Good Morning Daydreamers,
This past weekend I finished reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. This was not the type of book that I would typically pick up, but it was recommended and borrowed from a friend so I said why not!
The book is about a Shepard who follows his dream to find a treasure. At first I wasn’t too sure about this book. It was very spiritual and had very heavy content, but the underlying theme was that your heart was the only thing standing in the way of following your dreams. As you read on you become worried that the boy’s dream will never come true, even after he has travelled so far. By the end of the book, you realize that is this a very feel good book and it makes you think about yourself and if you have truly been following your own dreams.
This was a fairly short book, but because of the content, took me longer than I thought to read. I would definitely recommend it, especially if you have been feeling down on yourself or if you want to read a great story.
My rating: 4/5
